YOUR INSPIRATION

Already loving the overall design of the Mimco Button Bag I wanted to take a more practical approach so it speaks to a larger market. By simply stretching the size and adding a horizontal pocket it discretely allows the design to double as a "laptop bag". By changing the front double pockets to a single pocket it gives more space for the user and could also be redesigned as an detachable pouch, which again plays on functionality. Iv'e found that soft leather is more comfortable to carry and more forgiving with heavy loads. The small changes are practical changes.

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

For this design the body is slightly longer sitting at 25cm to allow for extra pocket. Same dimensions for width at 37cm and depth at 18cm. Straps remain the same with original fittings.

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

Overall material would be soft brown leather with a statement stripe down the centre front. This would adapt to trending colours/materials. A large zip runs the entirety of the bag around the bottom for a flat technology pocket, the pocket would have basic padding to allow for protection. This could also house books or folders. All fixtures would be gold especially buttons, zips and handle rings. The front pocket would be zip for connivence.
